George Telegraph shock East Bengal in Calcutta League

KOLKATA, India: In the space of five days after Mohun Bagan crashed to an upset win at the Calcutta football League, East Bengal too suffered the same fate against George Telegraph here on Friday afternoon.

In front of a capacity crowd at their own ground, the red and gold brigade were handed with a 1-0 defeat that shocked their fans.

The match remained goalless going into added time, but Justice Morgan struck the winning goal in the 93rd minute that gave George Telegraph a huge win against the heavyweights.

The win puts George on the top with 9 points from three matches, followed by Bhawanipore FC (7).

Interestingly, both East Bengal and Mohun Bagan are at the bottom of the table having lost their opening matches.

Both the top division clubs are rotating their squads as they are also participating in Durand Cup.
